foster. i'm kennedy. good night. monday. ♪ ♪ ♪ charles: a health care security emergency putting your medical information at risk. welcome, everyone, i am charles payne and for neil cavuto. google, microsoft, and facebook stepping in to stop the next heartbleed attack. millions are at risk. alerting people to change their passwords now. if kate rogers reports, a surge of cyberattacks could put the whole health care sector at
risk. we have to guess that are going to join kate. but first, let's hear what he has to say. what makes this so interesting, and this is a high-profile hack. a lot of insurance information of their, healthcare.gov doesn't collect your payment information or medical information, but it does add to your personal identifiers. the people want to get their hands on that. and instances of medical identity theft are up 100% in 2010. charles: i guess your medical information is valuable, but is it really that easy of a target macs are not apparently it is. it can help you file false medical claims, get prescription drug benefits and things like that. there's less of it out there. so drives up the price. charles: okay, this heartbleed thing seems to have come out of
nowhere. and it seems so vulnerable. even the idea that our medical records are up for grabs, it's really frightening. >> thank you for having me on the program. i think they kate is exactly right. her story was awful when it comes to this particular vulnerability. i think this is quite scary considering it has persisted over the past two years. and there are many who are impacted by this particular one ability which is so large.
>> spewing here is the thing. the thing spring up all the time. >> the most recent survey shows a 100% increase in this and the last four years. the financial services industry have gotten pretty darn good at protecting from these massive tax going on every single day. the target reach obviously being an outlier. so the bad guys are turning their sights to the places that don't protect their data as well as they need to. and that is health care. that data is so easy to monetize. charles: we know how horrible this makes people.
>> the centers for medicaid and medicare resources are posting once per in all of these government agencies, they go through all of these avenues to protect consumer data. >> this is such a massive one ability that impacts all secured transaction. also with internet connections or things of that nature. this includes your configurations to put together a plan to remediate this and then
you have lives at stake. so we have to execute on that in some cases some of these things may not ever get past us. >> we are in the cyberworld whether we like it or not. some of us went and kicking and screaming. so it feels like the ultimate catastrophe that we are talking about. is there anything that can be done and who really bears the most responsibility for getting this done? businesses, government, and individual remap. >> one of the main messages i want your viewers to understand is that 95% of the country does not understand that if your personal health information to compromise from your medical identity, it's not a financial concern you should be worried about. they can use that to maybe open a new account. but what you need to worry about is to protect your personal health record. because if someone uses that it's medical goods and procedures and prescriptions, they suddenly become you.
next time you go to the doctor that person, that record is not you, it's the other person. so this literally could kill you. so that is what your real concern should be. so right now there are technology fixes that are being put together to help consumers fight this. >> thank you guys so much. charles: i would love to say that these are the only things that are upsetting health care, but it's not. the move they did today that proves that the health care lives in a state of panic. and remember and ethical debate with a congressman who wanted more money to fix these bridges? >> may maybe the difference and the answer is more money. but the money that we spend, we cannot account for. >> where do you get that? that you cannot account for it.
the. charles: and tonight business lit. building bridges going nowhere. 53,000 bridges, all that federal money going to ask them, and with a major fund for infrastructure waiting for washington and it's going to be wasted anyway. okay. ready to do round two of the thing? >> yes, it is terrible that the bridges are in such bad shape. here's the problem. the gas tax will be raised. everyone hate the gas taxes. the problem is, where does the money go? that is the problem. it's been a problem. it's been used for things like
mike pass or rogue museums and that isn't right. and at the same time we even had states levying their own gas taxes and so the problem is where's the money going? >> i'm sure that california with the highest gas tax and gas in the country has just as many potholes as new york area so where does the money going to? how come there is no accountability with the cash that is elected in. >> the potholes are not as bad as new jersey. i just want to say that. but the money that we taken from all of these sources is enough to support all of the existing products and roads. but it's not enough to do a project of this scale. we were talking about $20 million in renovation. the biggest example of extra spending on this was 2009 and it is not enough. if you want to fix bridges, tax cuts are not enough.
charles: to long wrongly come in the market got hammered. i'm rocking to some old-school music and old school music and i hit one of these famous potholes. the tire is destroyed. and so how do we avoid this? because i paid a lot of taxes in new york city last year. >> i will tell you that you will be a lot better off if you are a major obama donor. [laughter] where did all the money go? look at all the major obama donors and figure out what is and is they are doing and then you can figure out where where that shovel ready money went. it went to tesla, warren buffett, it went to george kaiser and solyndra. al gore in fisker automotive. it didn't go as john said to fix bridges and roads. but it went into the pockets of
the guys that gave obama and the democratic party the big money. that is why you got that flat tire. >> a lot of great coupon spending. saying that i should incorporate this over the weekend. >> you have to give a lot of money to the left and many will be okay. >> is kind of not. but somewhere along the line we have to talk about this. sixty pages of this report. it got like half the project they have come in are not making money. but the problems that they are making money on, it's like the funds for these projects. again, these white elephants. >> here is the thing. we all know the infrastructure of the country will go out of
shape at times. we even need to get on it and fix this. charles: next up, health care troubles in oregon now gone after severe technical glitches. looking to be the first health care exchange to be taken over by the federal health care exchange. you say the obama administration is probably thrilled to have another plan on their watch. >> absolutely. they get credit for saying that we are given a states rights and the states can do what they want as long as they roll it out. in the same thing is happening in maryland. which is where i live, they have problems and they are probably going to scratch it. they can say we gave the state a chance but it's riddled with holes and that is the irony of this whole thing.
once it gets all involved, watch out for this and everything else because it will be even more crazy. >> some people say that the grand scheme from the very beginning. >> that is the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. if you think that they orchestrated this so they could wrap it up anyway, they knew the states would screw it up they are still going to use paper to collect application even though they do all kinds of stuff in this way. the federal government website was only marginally better than the stateside. so that's really not what happened. >> you can argue. i mean, it's easy to argue that the federal government has did exchange under its wing.
>> i hear what you're aying. all of these exchanges, the massive government takeover of health care. by the way, no way could they do it. because england have single payer is, they are about the size of oregon and france is about the size of texas. so there's no way the federal government can take over in that way. >> they should be able to get their act together. but you would think it would give some credence to the idea that ultimately they love to have a single-payer plan in this country. >> that's really what they wanted. this was a compromise from a modest rides including
lobbyists. >> they are already running student loans, and no medicare as well, but it's a big market. >> if you can hear me with this helicopter blades above you, you get the last word. >> whether they were behind it or not, i think that is a that of a stretch. but the premise, are they happy about it? there is static about it. they pointed out all of the other businesses that the government is ecstatic about. they are happy to move out the private sector whenever they can in some of those states are a real sore in the side of the federal government. >> taken over a lot of industries and big part of our economy which our economy is going nowhlk to you guys a
little bit later. so who would you rather hire? me or kate upton? i will give you time to think about it. [laughter] >> and looking for beauty over brains. next, you might be right. and is this all the proof that you need that we are becoming way too sensitive? the outcry as to why businesses everywhere need to pay attention. ♪ ♪
charles: oh, the age-old question. is beauty pay? undoubtedly it does. some say powerful ladies are because it doesn't require a pretty face. sabrina schaper agrees that beauty does not pay. but this marketing experts as attractiveness definitely does attract wealth. why is she wrong on that? >> i think everyone loves looking at a pretty face. that being plain plane doesn't necessarily hurt you. i looked at trysting social science research out of israel and men benefited america looks more than women. a lot of human resource people are young women, so they may feel threatened by other pretty women. so it's not black or white. charles: just because men may benefit and more, i do agree
that it seems like beautiful people seem to get all the breaks and a lot of great jobs. is it a coincidence? >> it is the ugly truth. there is one studying that shows her husband decades of studies in the united states that show that americans attribute success to good looks. good-looking people tend to attract other good-looking people. so they are more persuasive and collaborative, their betters dollars from all of these things. the beauty in and of itself won't lead to personal success. >> the both of you agree that it's opportunities. the attractive person seems to get more chances. >> yes, that's right. and you can put lipstick on someone, but it doesn't give them a brain. i think one thing is what
happens when you walk into an interview and you don't have any makeup on and maybe you don't kill us confident, you don't present yourself as well. there's a reason. it makes me feel more confident and speak that are and have the ability to feel better in front of the camera. the same thing goes for looks in the workplace generally. >> so i guess and it's atmosphere you started saying it is the ugly truth. how we deal with this in a society? >> beauty can mean how often you smile and how composed you are and what your body posture looks like. a lot of those things can be influenced. charles: okay, a lot of people seem to become very attractive in this way.
>> i can't speak for how people view their other dollars, but the faster you're going to get hired, the faster you're going to get promoted and were pay your point again. charles: so we are watching this. what does it what is the take away to forge ahead and find the best that you can? sumac beauty comes from within. i think that we are saying that of course made it opens doors, but it's not the end-all. you want to be able to show you have something to offer. so as great as it is to have a nice ability, to look like them, there are plenty of ceos that dumb. >> years ago my son was maybe seven years old and there was a janet jackson video.
charles: and the republicans newest target is not the democrats but a democrat and this is why. >> people are not educated in how to use the internet. anarchists have taken over. up. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up. everyday delta flies a quarter of million people while investing billions improving everything from booking to baggage claim. we're raising the bar on flying and tomorrow we will up it yet again.
>> so let's see what you think. they definitely have a point. top-flight balls are junk. another folks say that they don't have a sense of humor. and finally offensive to some individuals but perfect for the target demographic, this is a company that actually can take ad like this down. >> first of all, you show the pg-13 rating. if you play the whole thing out, it's almost like they don't know what you're talking about. but they wanted to think it was funny. my wife has certain cases he was laughing too. so i think it's very funny. the question is will it hurt sales? particularly to women who might find it more offensive than men.
so i don't think that it will. i think it adds to things. he said he think of the perfect ad. charles: i went to see ted. and i saw just as many women in the office laughing. so maybe my wife has a better sense of humor than i do. [laughter] >> that's why the marriage has lasted 25 years. [applause] >> but as a society, people talk about how tv has changed and movies and entertainment. but it doesn't feel like there's many barriers anymore. >> in fact it's funny. because even though we played hard this, even if you've played the whole thing, it's done with a good sense of humor. i think if something is done in a the aspect, it can be even tamer than the them look bad and given him a man. >> plus, we are talking about
it. >> you got it. >> switching gears, not just focusing on their opponents, they are focusing now on harry reid. >> do you know who is paying for those sleazy ads? harry reid. the logo. >> so will these gop ads actually work? some say a better worker this country is in for a world of hurt. another person saying heck no, the party has lost its luster. what are they offering? i think they are offering to bolstered situations and. >> i do think that harry reid has become an albatross around the neck of democrats. he said so many outrageous things. even if they donate $100 million to charity and everything. he said that they are the using this for their own good.
it just a nasty disagreeable person. he also, by the way, was ahead of the nevada gaming commission when he was there. he has a string of very questionable deals that led to him becoming a multimillion or. and if they get beyond sort of the attacks on the senate floor and they get to asking serious questions about how this i became a million or without some of the land deals that he was involved and which in which were very questionable come i think they really go there, that would the interesting. we don't like this guy, just because he says bad things on the senate floor, that is not enough. charles: we were just talking about society at large. but when it comes to our leaders, when the guy says mitt romney hasn't paid his taxes and doesn't have to put out the proof, once the cancer patients online lie about the impact of obamacare. >> every single negative thing about obamacare is a lie to him.
>> when you drag cancer patients through the mud, it's different than taking on the coke others who could probably handle themselves. >> he said that they were probably using this. it's just unbelievable. charles: so the idea is to go after him and were surgical ways than i think that there are a lot of journalists in nevada, a lot of them around the country who have been investigating what his connections are to some of those things that made him into a multimillionaire. going back into his role as gaming commissioner of the state of nevada, we know what las vegas is about. the underworld that is involved in racketeering and so forth. was he involved in a? welcome i think some of those questions need to be asked. because there's a lot more than meets the eye. >> i might disagree with you little but on this area that could be too complicated. i just think a mean-spirited guy like this, a couple weeks ago i really was wondering if he had a
mental deficiency. could he have been losing it to say things and then contradict them a couple weeks later. it's kind of frightening. >> the bottom line is that he can get away with it. like president obama, he owns the press with certain exceptions. but he owns so much that they give him a free pass. so the more that you say outrageous things in progress evening pushback, the more outrageous things you say will become. charles: gary, thank you so much. we appreciate it. a hot sauce plan that is too hot to handle. a guy who is fighting back coming up next. [inaudible]
>> this fight is really heating up. residents of one city demanding that this hot sauce plan be close down because they say that the air that comes from it is giving him headaches. but his attorney says that this plan should not be shut down. >> i agree that something needs to be done so that the residents who live around the plant can live. everyone wants the company to stay. what this company is doing cannot interfere with these folks are normal enjoyment of their property. that is the case that they have. he wondered how do you reconcile something like this? it really means that the lines have been drawn in the sand and
many residents say no, they have to shut this down. there's no way to stop it from interfering with daily life. >> they are already offering to resolve this problem in this whole problem could be fixed. charles: what is the issue here? they're going to make the investment, spend the money, if it works out. >> it seems like they certainly tried. as long as the company is making an aggressive effort to try to solve the problem, it should be fine. but the company needs to do something to make a passable for the people who live there to actually enjoy their own property.
so that's going to take the company a long time to do it, and the city council may have to do something to prevent them from continuing. >> i hope they don't set down a hot business. no pun intended. >> really is is grounds for million dollar lawsuit? what you think. >> they could have taken reasonable steps to prevent it. if that is the case, then she should be entitled to some damages. because she did suffer a break. >> at the hotel loses, they are going to have you standing up from here on out. is the perfect type?
so i don't know that that is the kind of defect which will cost them ultimately million dollars or it's a kind of gives you an idea about her motive. she fester for million dollars. is that how much it cost? >> some of the stuff seems extraordinarily privileged makes the cost of business go up. we talk a lot on the business channel where if you bring these lawsuits, you lose and you pay the other person's expenses. isn't it about time that we bring something like that here? >> you know, you don't want to have a four-person prevent it from going into court and have a lawsuit when that is necessary. so i think that is a difficult case to argue. that being said when you have something that is frivolous, i think that there should be some sort of mechanism to evaluate
how this works and how the courts could step in and make a difference. >> i agree, they do award attorney fees if it has proven him to be a frivolous lawsuit and that remains is dinner. because otherwise we are just making people not want to go forward with these trials and lawsuits can actually do have a valid point is because of the risk of having to pay the cost. so long as the court can analyze that eventually ended tied whether or not it is frivolous, it might be the right idea. charles: thank you, ladies. have a great weekend and beware of those tall hotel bar stools. and maybe that amazon delivery drone will get some use. why amazon is talking delivery and taking on the union's. and cowboys cowboys and indians march on washingto this monday, speaking with one of their opponents.
charles: back with a business blitz. postal unions may have more problems. while they are protesting the partnership with labels, amazon is looking to get into the delivery game or the online retailer testing of its own delivery system and gary smith says this will prove that the private sector can do a better job in the public sector. the question is will customers pay more than they are willing to pay for. >> it. >> definitely. i think that the customers will pay the right price.
>> we talk about the mail. the whole reason that we got this coast-to-coast mail service was started by the pony express which was a private enterprise. because those guys started to make money. it shows that money is being spent and we will get the mail delivered at the right price. >> he is right, there's no incentive for the u.s. postal service they own a lot of real estate is not used, the u.s. postal service should've put themselves immediately and shopping malls or drugstore chains in the white area.
offices and so can they do it on the cheap? why not try to give it a shot. >> it's probably going to work. competitors won't have it and it will be wiped out. >> the postal service is full employment act of union workers. a half-million people would work for her. and it is so badly run. >> the post office also helps a startup who needs to ship things on my. charles: starting a forest floor
is the first state that will collect sales tax from amazon. so i want to talk to you about this. these costco, they have to pass them on. >> they are finding a way to get their hooks into any profitable business. a and off already. state that the nickel and dime you for years and years and years and so are the localities in the states. >> you know, to level the
>> in your direction, you're going to turn amazon into a mini tax collector for all 50 dates. that is ridiculous. >> i mean, you do have to wait us out. the idea that we have these amazing economic juggernauts, they create jobs and opportunity, because sometimes this is just a farce. it's unfair to best buy, come on, they could do an online version. i'm a think about ultimately what you want the states to do. you want to be collecting the money, hurting business and growth. >> we have to have a mix of income sales and gas taxes.
so where is the one to attack the remark. >> if the destination for the population of the united states. >> now they have this and you're right, no one has an infinite guaranteed. so before we let you guys go, we are talking about amazon. i thought they had a phenomenal number. >> number one i thought it is one of the greatest companies that is out there.
in this market is very volatile. i think it's still time with the long-term prospects on both. >> i have to agree with him. the volume has been light. i think there's an effort and there has been a taiwan. what about you? >> who says they can make money. [applause] >> what are they going to start growing the business and decide to put the squeeze on them. i think tech investors have made the notion of that. but maybe some of these companies -- >> we have an analyst saying that amazon is the most overvalued company. charles: coming up, your tweets are hot and
charles: time for your review were tweets and to have trust issues with washington. civic politicians avoid straight talk so noah and his offending cannot be held accountable. >> all politicians talk but with no a ship -- action issues are the save as 40 years ago. >> the majority of politicians are out for them sell their crops and
uncorrupted american and unethical don't trust most of them. don't stop commenting on twitter. thank you for watching. have a great weekend. >> good evening i m. ashley webster. the immigration reform debate has house republicans fighting with house republicans blasting the president and the president slaming congress john boehner under fire for what is called contactor -- attacking conservatives trying to retake the senate. here he is in a mocking tone taking on his own party for inaction on immigration reform. >> don't make me do this. [laughter] "this is it" too hard.
ashley: least he is not crying. but he has changed his position on immigration reform and least nine times and while he was blasted his fellow republicans his counterpart in the senate was accusing the of president of taking the entire constitutional system by not taking on the immigration law. the entire system is threatened with the executive branch suspends the lot at its whim and we are in peril when the commander in chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders. read well the president used the naturalization ceremony for 20 military -- 20 military -- with nuclear ambitions also today fox news has confirmed the administration will hitch
russian individuals with the new round of economic sanctions on monday. ed henry has the report. >> well president obama is on south korean soil north korea is threatening to unleash a fourth test of a nuclear weapon a situation that mr. obama called a direct threat to the united states as he issued a stern warning against a the north korean dictator. >> we need to look at additional ways to apply pressure under further sections -- perception. >> this has been marked with questions of the president backs up tough talk of the world stage he was careful to stress there was no magic bullet to apply to korea as the president warns of
potentially bigger sanctions that targets a specific sectors of russia's economy like energy. >> we need to lay the groundwork so if and when a uc be even greater escalation or these sanctions would have larger consequences civic republicans say that sounds echo a broken record to vladimir putin. >> almost two months since the president has said he will pay up price. it is all talking and no action spirit the situation on the ground has been unraveling with officials vowing to block militants. >> the world has not yet forgotten but it is already keen to start a third world war. he was searching a conference call with european leaders but the
president and secretary of state john carey still talked tough about a new round of u.s. sanctions. >> for seven days russia has refused to take a single concrete step in the right direction. >> their rhetoric was backed up by #diplomacy that went to twitter that let's hope the kremlin and federation will live by the promise of #. is leading to a russian officials have been trying to plagiarized so she took action. >> al is highlighting the fact there were not following the #with action. >> so we can expect a new round of u.s. sanctions targeting individuals and entities as early as monday. ashley: the obama administration planning to
sharpen the focus on the bid terms with an assist on the economy and domestic issues. the growing number of foreign policy challenges we have juan williams and former political director ed rollins in the studio. let's pick up what ed was talking about the president is all talk no action while putin does what he wants to do in the ukraine. is that unfair criticism or does he have to take action? >> eventually he has to do something especially if we see the incursion amount to real damages in terms of ukrainian sovereignty but what is missing without presentation is the notion there has to be a sense you do things gradually. you don't want to ramp up and do everything all the ones. you have to have a sense it
will take place once the russians file may ukrainian sovereignty. everybody thought crimea was wrong but people allowed it to pass that i think sanctions 31 individuals including one bank now a round of sanctions that relies on the european allies be willing to take some pain. that is the next that but we're not there yet and we don't want to act before the russians act. ashley: what are the options ? >> the key thing is that if we do anything we have to make sure our allies are there and we have not made that strategy clear. we can put on sanctions that will bring chaos to the economic system. ruling to do that alone?
still make you can use as an excuse to go to war. >> putin is tough and i think he thinks the president is not progress racer in the north koreans as teddy roosevelt said speaks softly carry a big stick we speak loudly with no stickpin we need to show we're willing to do something and economic sanctions are the only thing to move forward. >> let's talk about john boehner and his mocking tone to immigration reform. but he has changed his position in a times. >> there is no window in the congressional calendar that we are looking to june and july before the recess where he would like to have something done. at the moment the house of the a judiciary committee has been very reluctant to move any kind of legislation
through despite the fact boehner has been pressuring him. so he has been acting now. that was it emotional will mend where he is frustrate with his own party. he thinks if you don't do something you open the door to have the obama act unilaterally with an executive order to halt the deportation is to become a big hero and further hurt aspirations in terms of outreach. >> it is already divided. i was chairman of the congressional committee in this is bad politics with the complicated issue so i a have like the ryan resolution to get democrats issues and john boehner in to have the house and the
senate if we don't take back the senate his speaker is over. >> ended john boehner wants to g out to make this an issue then it is his waterloo but he is now way out of a herd. >> what about this time next year? >> republicans are sure to take back the house. democrats that is not the issue that you were speaking to but i am the big fan of john boehner but i am a democrat. but i would say he took on
heritage he took on large segments of the tea party he likes them but then there are these people who just use the t party to raise the money to pump up the media ratings. i think john boehner is saying creance some elements. i don't know. even that hard-line teapartier people have decided that they would rather have him the and eric cantor. that is interesting to me. i know how long that lasts but they have not rejected him even with all the budget issues. they'd never rejected him. >> three strikes you are out to. [laughter] ashley: thank you for being here. the nra kicking off the annual convention in indianapolis drawing thousands of gunners had
activist and potential possible candidates and of full defense of second amendment rights. >> firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens help in the fight against crime. >> we like to protect ourselves, our families and homes as gimmickry musty andean fight and win the fight. >> the tradition of hunting and shooting is on something we should have to ask readers for permission. it is fundamental to achieve happiness in america. ashley: rubio it has the most to prove brandon like others the florida's senator has gotten a bb-plus grade to be insufficiently dedicated to the cause. a record amount of americans exercising dendrites according to the government applications jumped by 380% from 2005 through 2013 that
has created as a massive backlog in the registration system. almost finishing the week sharply lower the s&p down 15 the nasdaq paul's 73. will shire 5,000 measuring the losses at two under $50 billion. thus three all posted losses of less than 1% for the week. crude oil down more than $1 and gold is up $10 closing just above $1,300 per ounce. the yield on the ten year falls also. consumers and to raising to the highest level after the automaker reported a 39% drop of profits. the tech sector hit hard amazon is down and pandora plunging 16%. stay with us.

ashley: the pentagon announces a russian spy ship has been operating near the gulf of mexico over the past month per officials suspect it is in the spying operation against the nuclear separation -- submarine base and other facilities. ukrainian prime minister accuses russia to start world war iii predicting the invasion is imminent. the pentagon confirms on several occasions over the
last to brouwer's russian aircraft have entered ukrainian airspace. and now objecting to the observer team in degree in escorts now for the first time the kiev troops have used lethal force to recapture territory killing five of fighters if it escalates russia will launch military drills near the border in response of you craig military machine and nato exercisers of eastern europe for obama spoke with four other european leaders about imposing a new round of sanctions which will be announced on monday promising the united states will keep perrault's in the quiver. putin has reported all halts -- reportedly halted all talks with the white house. with me now former rb general jack keane also a fox news military analysts. the president says we will have eras in our quiver but
do we need to take action and what kind? >> and windows our actions have been feeble to impose any restraint on putin. our policy is the escalation and do not provoke putin. by believe the policy has failed and do not fear adverse consequences but the policy we use right now is inviting adverse consequences but so he should impose very tough economic sanctions. the head negative gdp growth and probably next quarter losing capital investment if we hit the economic and financial banking system that would take the toll. also a greater toll.
there is much we can do the gradual incremental approach is a failed strategy. ashley: all of those sanctions could also serve as an excuse for putin to continue here is aggressive stance blaming though last. it could backfire? >> that fear paralyzes us into inaction in. with this aggressiveness with to but the markers on the table if you do that. >> not to have the troops bear down and at the same
time reid getting the support we should be? >> but angela merkle is the key as the chancellor of germany the largest economy and the largest amount of political clout as well. she gradually is coming along but i feel the strategy is -- and we should have acted unilaterally in by leading we had a much better chance to bring them with us as opposed to trying to get them to move at our urging and if that is a different strategy. we should have stepped out ourselves there is some very good chance they will follow ashley: i thought he would take it to a point then back off but not now. >> his strategy has always been being run at said
ukraine is admitting defeat the recovery with prestige or power was the indexation of crimea is all about to turn it to the cooperative arrangement this government is now anti-russia in those 50,000 troops on the border is all about intent -- intimidation he does not want to invade he knows that will bring a huge amount of problems by the time the west reacted it was already over. >> no doubt. the ukrainians have no match but there are major issues but he occupies 12 cities right now that the ukrainians cannot get those forces out so to say he is not in ukraine is a huge mistake but he is already there.
he just does not want to bring his army division across the border unless he has to mean he will if the kiev government does not come to him. ashley: we appreciate your insight. >> space ex-ceo announces a major breakthrough with space flight to that they could have the soft landing the reusable rocket booster in to the atlantic ocean that was the good news but it mandated rusty's in this mostly destroyed unlikely they could never recover it but it puts them on track for a reusable rocket landing at cape canaveral by the end of the year. this comes after the space x successful launch from the rocket to send the spacecraft to the international space station 2.5 tons of supplies now is

a union the vote is if they want to the yes vote could entitle them to a piece of the revenue like extended health benefits, a compensation for travel and the ability to transfer schools without a penalty battle that is certain is college football will be more costly. >> where will the money come from? student fees? eliminate sports? what will be due to pay the bills? >> clearly there is momentum for change with college athletics. but whether that can come monism with student athletes remaining students or if they need to become a employee with the union deciding what is fair play. back to. ashley: mike taliban. federal alth officials warn we are in the middle of the biggest measles help break. 129 people have been infected this year compared with just four cases this
time last year. 58 cases reported in california, and they are highly contagious respiratory disease with high fever hacking cough runny nose and a rash almost over all square inches of your body. recalcitrant defined by the dictionary as having the obstinate uncooperative attitude to authority or discipline. basically any teenager of the planet. we will be right back. >> the latest scandal a secret weedy list for health care results in the death of 40 american heroes. one congr
schedule and over budget to cost 328 million now it is more than double that 800 million. on the heels of reports at least 40 veterans died waiting for appointments in phoenix va many were put on a secret waiting list to cover up long wait times for treatment. the house is set to vote whether to hold lois lerner in contempt after the former official refused to testify about the targeting of conservative groups according to a member of -- a memo. when next guest is of member of the committee that voted to hold her in contempt. member of the house oversight and judiciary committee also a former navy jag officer. thank you for joining us from and jacksonville. beginning with lois lerner we hear claims in all the department of justice and her are implicated about
emails and threats of prosecution? >> we uncovered emails that the department of justice approached lois lerner to discuss prosecuting the conservative groups at the suggestion of a democratic senator from rhode island. the department of justice was in discussions with the irs about the targeting situation but then since the scandal broke guess who's supposedly in charge conducting the investigation ended it? miracle there department of justice. this raises serious questions whether using criminal prosecution is something that is appropriate. i don't think so but how can you investigate the targeting if your plug dash your own agency was a part of it? ashley: the house is set to go out on this next month. what do you think will happen?
how will this play out? the majority of the house will hold in contempt i have voted to hold her in contempt and i will do that again. the bottom line is she is not willing to provide any information to the committee and testified about her innocence then refuse to answer questions in but the fifth amendment does not work that way so i am confident she waved her fifth amanda rights and needs to answer our questions or will be held in contempt. ashley: talking about what has been going on with veterans' medical situation in-house and the lack of care they had been receiving and at least 40 deaths are attributed they are on waiting lists and a secret at that. as a former navy jag officer the more outrageous this
issue becomes a. >> it is sickening. the number one honor i have as a member of congress with the dti perform to help our veterans. unfortunately bill whole system is a long-running national tragedy howard serves our veterans and when you have a secret list were the men were dying, that reaches a new low. it turns my stomach to even think about but we need to get to the bottom intel think this is confined to phoenix va but this may be other instances but we need to have accountability in the eye of a co-sponsor of the bill that would allow senior managers ian senior executive officials to be fired if they don't get the job done. right now the civil service rules what you do is to stay
in the system but that is unacceptable. we need to get the job done if they can do that they need to be sent packing but somebody in there that can. ashley: speaker boehner getting testy over immigration reform. do you feel his frustration or taking an appropriate stance? >> is totally inappropriate. the problem is this some of those reforms repeat that mistake of the past i have no interest to repeat past mistakes as it relates to illegal immigration. ashley: leer out of time. thank you for joining hess from jacksonville.
>> thank you. ashley: do you believe that john boehner will be speaker of the house at this time next year? the note that lou dobbs.com. to former pope's will be declared saints they will canonizes pope john paul the second was put on the fast track shortly after his death also pope john 23 to help to fund the catholic church. mr. earnings to lead triple digit sell-off. is this a trend or a minor blip? keep it here.
ashley: bad news for the housing market mortgage lending falling to the lowest level in 14 years the decline comes entirely from a sharp pullback in refinancing now new purchases are flat from one year earlier. shares and sliding sharply as investors were put on edge between russia and ukraine and mixed earnings news. joining me now is the chief economist from dbs investment research. it is the rough day today. a big sell-off visit russia or earnings? >> i think the uncertainty about the russian ukraine this situation is very important. nobody knows exactly h that will work out. meanwhile for earnings, there is nothing wrong with earnings but disappointment but there is more good news than bad news
ashley: is the bar those of you don't hit it where the expectations have been tempered that magnifies the of this? >> i think right now is coming out after of long rally with low multiples that you mr. earnings it does not cost as much as high multiples. ashley: that is true. that is the big $64,000 question but where are we headed? you talked about the housing industry that is important for the consumer and prices have contests -- recovered by far from being healthy. >> you will have the bigger fraction of your young people moving into apartments. we will have a boom of the apartment building and renting of single-family
homes. people need their space they can still get it that they have to do it through renting instead of buying a must have a very good credit rating. ashley: this points to the fed maintaining record low interest rates which the market likes because it is cheap to borrow money but it does not speak to the overall health is of the economy. that means the economy is doing better. >> and would rather have the economy do better than have interest rates go up than to be viewed as in trouble to have interest rates stay low the market would prefer to see an environment that the fed feels it is safe to raise rates. ashley: seeing a sharp sell-off talk about earnings but some of the stocks are over inflated and they need to come down. is there a sense this is a
correction? >> there will always be a subset of companies that are frothy. when you have had multiples you are more vulnerable in the that is the reality coming in with good expectations. ashley: are you bullish? >> i think we will setback i think it was held back by the bad winter but we will have 3 percent growth if my colleagues are bullish on the stock market on then s&p 500. ashley: a good place to stop right there. be sure to listen three
and over the up of a phoenix va scandal speak to any veteran they're always long waits at almost every hospital this is part of the system. we love to hear from you. e-mail us at email@example.com. follow was on twitter or go to the facebook page or links to everything authors of the commons will receive a copy of the book "upheaval". now for the application of the day a reminder for word john boehner the personal attacks during the primary became so heavy the state republican chairman postulated what he had the 11th commandment thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow republican i have followed that ever since the campaign that is from the ronald reagan autobiography.
now let's get to the "a team." think you both for being here. let's kick this off to talk about president obama the way he handles what is going on with ukraine. a growing corps says we have to take action if he a understands only one thing and that is section. >> but the strong rhetoric this makes the situation and more precarious. it makes allies around the globe in situations like this. i don't know where the stake is. >> there is no stick. does obama know what it will
do? >> i think the promise of #. [laughter] it is scary. we will not intervene militarily. there is no chance of that. >> even across the border? >> it is not a nato ally. with the defense of poland that are native countries but there is more we could do with terms of sanctions also with the keystone pipeline delay if we telesco pro energy position it would put russians in a weaker position with their own dependence on fossil fuels. ashley: interesting point. getting to house speaker boehner i know you have seen the sound bite to mock his fellow republicans for their lack of decisiveness not wanting to take a stand on immigration reform.
one congressman earlier today said it is completely inappropriate. what is yet to? >> i think he meant it in a jovial fashion to read his colleagues it is not uncommon to hear from congressman of the record they have to take up immigration but the politics are tough but this probably isn't the best way to win the votes. ashley: there is a bit of frustration but what do you think? >> there is something to be said for the 11th commandment. with a limited defense it is true of a lot of republicans have spoken ill of him and other establishment republicans so there is bad blood on both sides. >> how much does this split going into the mid term is? >> we will see the effect it has ended depends.
>> we are unified it through the midterms because of barack obama. two words. republicans of all different stripes if you look at the polls numbers will vote republican in congressional races because they want to send the president a message she has gone way too far to the left and is scarce the american people. >> i think that will probably work out in the end ashley: but the issue of the senate with the mid term. >> the reason it will be close is the democrats have a five seat majority but they have a bigger advantage because of the dozen seats that are thought to be competitive almost all are held by democrats some of those are states that romney carried in 2012. ashley: one day is a long time in politics but i want
to get to this. the 94 year-old former supreme court justice speaks out in favor of legalizing marijuana -- marijuana stevens compared the rule stewpot to alcohol prohibition. >> it is ironic he said this after leaving the of high court. [laughter] fell on a more serious note john paul stevens' opinion on a policy question like this is about as important as yours or mine but i would be interested if he reconsidered his views with gonzalez that is the case of 2005 that the court said i think justice stevens wrote the opinion that the federal government could use its authority to regulate interstate commerce to punish people who were growing marijuana in compliance with state law for their own personal use. space said commerce was involved at all.
ashley: reroute of time. i am sorry. now we know why you're itching to get to that issue thank you for joining us. up. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up. everyday delta flies a quarter of million people while investing billions improving everything from booking to baggage claim. we're raising the bar on flying and tomorrow we will up it yet again.
